AirDance New Mexico is a company of multi-disciplinary artists who collaborate with each other to create exciting, innovative performances, featuring their critically acclaimed aerial dances and multi-media movement theater works. AirDance productions incorporate trapezes, aerial fabric, swings, hoops, aerial cube, and invented apparatus and interactive sets, created from a variety of materials. Performances feature original music by local artists and may include original scripts, projections, unusual props, and whatever else may strike our fancy. AirDance shows seek to entertain while exploring our lives and dreams, shedding light on hidden aspects of our collective being. AirDance New Mexico is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization incorporated in 2011. AirDance New Mexico also offers classes and workshops at our home, the AirDance ArtSpace, and is available for special workshops and performances for your group or organization.

Debra Landau

Artistic Director Debra Landau performs Spiderwoman in Albuquerque's KIMO Theater, 1998

"A circus [of] trapezes, trampolines and ropes. Monologues on everything from spitting to religion. Live rock music and videotapes. Are you thinking modern dance? Dancer/choreographer Debra Landau could change your mind about the art form."

Anthony DellaFlora, The Albuquerque Journal






AirDance New Mexico is in residence at the AirDance ArtSpace.

It is fully ADA accessible.
